Zambia is a landlocked country located in the central part of southern Africa. It is made up of more than 70 ethnic groups scattered all over the country. All these groups have different cultures and beliefs. Despite having so many ethnic groups, Zambia boasts of being a peaceful country since gaining independence in 1964. This does not just come but requires understanding and having a spirit of embracing one another. Logically speaking with so many ethnic groups with different...

We know education is a form of learning in which knowledge and skills of people are passed on generation after generation through teaching or even research. Why must many youths be limited when it comes to education? Is it the lack of learning institutions in many countries? Or the fact that many youths do not have the self drive/ motivation and desire to be educated? Nelson Mandela once said "education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" so as...


From my own observations, the majority of people in my country (Zambia) do not really connect with issues whose effects are not instant. Climate change is inclusive! For as long as climate change effects are not directly affecting them, a greater part of the Zambian population gives a blind eye and a deaf ear to issues of climate change. However, many others among them, feel connected to climate related issues once they directly affect them. A practical example that may have pushed people to po...

A Child is a person below the legal age of 18 years, as stipulated by the laws of Zambia. By virtue of been human children are entitled to rights which are known as child rights. It is unfortunate that despite Zambia been a signatory to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), the majority of the Zambian children suffer from various socio-economic challenges, such as increasing household poverty, child labour, child trafficking, early marriages HIV/AIDS,...

Examination practice has become very rampant such that learners as well as those re-writing exams are not ashamed to talk about it. It is high time somebody did something to reverse this very bad trend so that Zambian exams can become credible again. "Do away with malpractice" should be our motto because this bad trend has reduced the spirit of hard work among the learners. This latter spills over to work places and thus there is no development in general.

As an educator I have observed both advantages and disadvantages of the re-entry policy. However, there are more disadvantages than advantages. Well, the main advantage is the girl child getting back to class. Their performance will be affected, and the main disadvantage is that she may become pregnant at a very tender age followed by complications during delivery. Unfortunately she may even be infected with HIV & AIDS.........….. Whats the way to move forward for our chi...

About 10 years ago, I remember myself in a classroom full of small boys and girls. I vividly remember my environmental science teacher, a Mrs. Mutale, she always teased us to plant trees as small as ourselves. So that when the trees grow big like her, they are used to make all the small things that were in our classroom, starting from the small desks that we sat on, the small chalk board in front of us, the small books and pencils, including our small uniforms that we wore. Without even botherin...

Human rights in Zambia are violated. As part of the Zambian youth population, I feel so bad. Some of the examples of human rights violations are: children's and disabilities rights. I am very much concerned about children's rights because the same kids are the next generation so we have to take care of these kids. Human rights in Zambia are addressed by the Constitution of Zambia. The constitution is made up of 3 organs of the government which makes sure that the human rights are...

My name is Kelvin Chikwa. I am 17 years old from Lusaka, Zambia. I am at Munali secondary school.Here are some of the reasons I think Zambia is developing poverty and hunger.......................... Dependency Syndrome: In as much as foreign aid is essential for the development of country we should begin to look elsewhere to become more economically independent. Forty-four years after independence we are still dependent on the West for support. We can hardly stand on our own f...
